Solar Dynamics Observatory goes live today! (and a hike to Seven Falls)
At 11:15 AM local time, NASA posted the first images and movies from the new Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). One of the most remarkable things about SDO is that it will be imaging the sun in multiple wavelengths every 10 seconds. While the above 3 minute movie explains the mission, go to the SDO website to see all the first light images and videos. The video below is just one of the stunning movies released today!
